Mumbai TV on Fox & CNN

November 26, 2008

fire7_385x185_440374a1For hours this very day, Fox, MSNBC and CNN were commandeered non-terrorist style by various Indian broadcasting entities to cover what could well have been treated by the media as an internal story pre-9/11.  Now every attack demands fresh coverage, right or wrong, this is our world.

It’s also a method for Engliash-speaking Indian field reporters and anchors to get their audition tapes in the hands of U.S. networks.

Currently, I’m watching a Hindi language interview from Cama Hospital and a cell phone photo of a shooter in a citibank tee shirt (???)

And whatever happened to Bombay anyway?
